Baby Registry Ideas and Top Picks Trending into 2020

By Laura Byrne

The baby product industry is booming with more than you can imagine hitting the market this year! There’s the basics you’ll need for baby, like a car seat and safe place to sleep, but there’s also a plethora of things you don’t really need…but will want!

To get an idea of what’s trending into 2020 in the baby registry universe, we stopped by the Juvenile Product Manufacturers Associations Built for Baby Show in Orlando so we can share what’s new with you! We’ve selected some of our favorite things that fall into three trending categories for the new year.

  1. Mother care: Wellness for mom and things that make life simpler 
  2. Technology integrated into products like car seats and monitors. 
  3. On the go: Were bringing our babies with us more and more. These products help make it an easy and simpler process. 

Safety first. “Products in this industry are very highly regulated and tested really rigorously. So you can be really be confident your products are safe.” -Kelly Mariotti, JPMA executive director.

-The JPMA certification is an extra measurement to look out for

 Starting a registry? There are three things EVERY family should have:

  • A safe place for baby to sleep.
  • A car seat.
  • A stroller.

Have fun with the rest!
